Simple and effective grease band to protect fruit and ornamental trees by controlling orchard pests, particularly winter moths, caterpillars, earwigs and ants. For best results, apply the grease band at the beginning of winter, before adult female moths emerge to climb the trees and lay eggs. Re-apply in summer to protect against ant infestations and summer crawling pests. The Fruit Tree Grease Band will protect your trees and fruit by trapping the moths before they have a chance to lay eggs, preventing problems later when the caterpillars emerge to feed on leaves. Other harmful crawling insects will also be controlled, but beneficial insects will not be affected as they are not attracted by the green colour. Natural, poison-free 1.75m x 10cm grease band. Suitable for organic gardening. Remains effective for up to 2 months. Cut to desired length, wrap around tree trunk and secure in place with string provided.
